COMMENTS FROM THE PASTOR:
Brother Ron Lynch will be with us again in Revival starting on Easter Sunday morning April 21st and will be preaching The Word through Wednesday night, April 24th. I hope you will make plans to join with us in this very special time of worship.
Chosen Road will be with us on Easter Sunday morning during the regular Sunday School hour. We had such a good time last year, we invited them to be with us again this year. The Lord is opening up many ministry opportunities for Chosen Road as they are traveling around the world with the Gospel in music. I hope you will keep this ministry in your daily prayers.
Thanks again for all the birthday cards and words of encouragement. You really made my birthday special.
I Chronicles 13:3, “And let us bring again the ark of our God to us: for we enquired not at it in the days of Saul.”
God’s work done in God’s way will never lack God’s supply! David was a man after God’s own heart but when he decided to bring the Ark of God to Jerusalem instead of following God’s instruction, David followed the example of the Philistines. What David wanted to do was very good and God exalting, but the way David went about doing it was very God dishonoring. The Lord had given instruction on how the Ark was to be carried. But instead of following the Word of The Lord, David chose to use the world’s example and have the ark transported on a wagon, a wagon that was being pulled by oxen, not carried by Priests. And when the wheels hit a pothole, Uzza reached up to keep the Ark from falling off the wagon and The Lord struck him dead. The Lord has killed many a ministry because someone was trying to serve The Lord, but they were trying to serve Him in their own way. We are guilty of trying all the world’s gimmicks to build up the church. But the only way that has ever worked is God’s Way. You can have the biggest and best church building and you can have all the most skilled speakers and teachers, but if the church is not following God’s Way it will never be built up. Following God’s Word, God’s Way is how we are built up and that’s the only way.
John 14:6, “Jesus saith unto him, I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”
In Christ, Ricky
